Anxiety

Remember me?
I'm the one that keeps you awake at night.
I'm the one that keeps you on the run.
I'm the one that keeps you locked away.
I'm the one that keeps you at bay.
I'm the one that makes your demons stay.
I'm the one that leaves you confused.
I'm the one that leaves you in tears.
I'm the one that leaves you lost and just like a child you'll never be found.
I'm the one that breaks you down.
I'm the one that makes you freak out.
You might be Superman in your world but mentally I'm your kryptonite that'll leave you weakened for the scavengers to take away piece by piece.
You think all positive thoughts until I come around.
I'm the undertaker to your dreams.
I'm the grey clouds to your sunny days.
No matter how much you give your grace to God, I will always be there a step ahead.
I'm the reason you think you're better off dead.
Do you know who I am?

Yes, you're the one that keeps me awake at night.
You're the one that keeps me on the run.
You're the one that keeps me locked away.
You're the one that keeps me at bay.
You're the reason my demons stay.
You're the reason for many of my dark times, you're the reason I wanna do wrong crimes.
But what you don't understand is that if you were a piece of paper I'll throw you away.
I'll fight you as much as I can cause no matter how many bullets I've counted in the clip you won't ever make me fall down deep enough to trip. I hate you with a passion, my anger for you isn't passive but your ego has grown very massive...
You're more than just my anxiety.
You're the fuel to my anger.
You're my enemy and between you and me you'll never get the best of me even though you wish I'll take that bullet so my sign can read rest in peace but that'll be for you and of me.
